the master cylinder will be drained, so when i bleed it the fluid is new and clear .i don't see any leaks on top. i think it may be the hydraulic throwout bearing. would that leak only at high speeds or would that leak through all the gears? and how hard of a repair would this be?
i check the fluid level almost daily and as long as i just do local driving(under 50 mph) it doesn't seem to lose any fluid. but as soon as i get on a highway(over 50 mph) it seems to immediately(within 10 minutes) lose all the fluid.that is when i smell what smells like pancake syrup.
I had the same problem on my 93, clutch fluid would leak out about every 30 days. Had tp replace the slave cylinder/throwout bearing. On my 93 I hade to separiate the engine/trans to replace it. PITA! Part was $165 at AutoZone.
